forever changed because of 9/11. we honor and mourn still those who fell on that day. it was the world, a potpourri of personalities, nationalities, languages, different descriptions and life stories. it was the world that was in america, a country that welcomes all. and then of course those of us who are reminded of the rushing in of heroes and she-ros, nypd, civilian volunteers, firefighters, port police, federal workers. all in some way helping to save someone's life. fellow office workers, dish washers, restaurant workers, some who died so that others might live.
